The first volume on the transplantation of tissues was published in 1955. This volume deals with the transplantation of specialized tissues, each chapter being contributed by a specialist in the field. The chapter on the cornea was done by Dr. Ramon Castroviejo. This chapter is disappointingly short, occupying only twenty-four pages, which makes it one of the shortest in the book.
The book begins with an excellent general résumé of cells and tissues and the zoologic laws of transplantation. The illustrations are excellent, owing largely to the use of a high-grade gloss paper.
